A very useful list of opisthobranch species "Known" (?) from the southern California
bight. As this document qualifies as formal journal publication, I am compelled to point
out several severe problems in the opisthobranch section. They are undocum ented and
unsupported synonymies of two species: Aplysiopsis enteroi orphae (Cockerel! i Eliot,
1905) = Aplysiopsis smitfai (Marcus, 196 1) = Pnyllobranchopsis enterona orpcae C. & E.
Flabellinopsis iodinea (Cooper, 1862) = Coryphella sabulicola Co wen & Laur, 1978.
Although I tend to agree with the latter, an explanation of the basis for these changes '
would certainly be preferable; and, many species included in the list are of questionable
status and have avoided collection and/or documentation since originally described. This,
of course, is a reflection upon the need for a little "formal" house cleaning zn many of
our older species, particularly those of the Bullomorpha.
To my knowledge, this may be the first "formal" reference to Tritonia diosedea as ;
senior synonym to T. exsulans, although Thompson (1971) did imply it.
Many new species are known from the bight, however, only one is listed here,
Cadiens's Rumcinida sp. (?)
Because this document is not widely available, two points of interest should be noted:
a) the range extension of Alderia -m odesta from Elkhorn Slough to Newport Bay,
California, 300 miles, and b) although dropped by Smith & Carlton, 1975, Aglaja nana's
range is extended from San Francisco Bay to Newport Bay, California, 375 miles. Does
this mean that A. nana is still valid? Other than these oversights, a formidable work. —

A COLOR VA RIATION IN
DORIDACEA). by David W
CHROMODORIS MACFARLANDI ( N U DIB R A N C HIA
Behrens, 416 Lilac Drive, Los Osos, CA 93402.
Personal observations of a large number of specimens and literature concerning
the cryptobranch dorid nudibranch Chrom odoris m acfarlandi Cockerell, 1901 has shown
the characteristic notal striping to be highly consistent. Color descriptions by Cockerell
(1901), MacFarland (1966), Keen (19-71), McDonald (1977) and Behrens (1980) indicate a
body color of deep violet with three solid yellow to cadmium orange longitudinal
stripes. The median stripe begins about half way between the anterior margin of the
notum and the rhinophores. and continues posteriorly to the branchial sheath. The
midlateral pair begin just behind the rhinophores and pass posteriorly midlaterally,
encircling the branchial pocket, where they unite. MacFarland (1966:155) reports that
in one specimen several scattered small spots of yellow were observed on the m antly
behind the gill and the union of the lateral stripes were prolonged posteriorly into a
broad point, the tip of which was encircled by the above spots. Reported here is an
additional yet more pronounced example of this color variation.
Figure 1: Chro mod oris m acfarlandi, Cockerell, 1901
On November 3, 1979,. a variant colored individual of C. m acfarlandi was collected
by Mr. John Warrick, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, while conducting intertidal
surveys in Diablo Cove, San Luis Obispo County, California (figure 1). The specimen
measuring 40mm in length, was marked by quite irregular midlateral striping. Typical
in all other characteristics, the midlateral stripes were broken into a series of
scattered irregular yellow spots. Less dense anteriorly, the spots formed an irregular
stripe posteriorly. Although never actualy stated in the above color descriptions, the
midlateral stripes are always with this exception smooth and unbroken.

CALL FOR SPECIMENS
Currently there are some 30 undescribed species of opisthobranchs. on the west coast
alone. Most of these species are in the process of being described by one or more
researchers. Specimens, photographs, and all types of biological and ecological
information are welcomed by those trying to describe them. This section will contain
preliminary information (not descriptions) along with names of anyone known to be
working with the animal. The intent is absolutely NOT to describe anything new to
science here. I am hopeful that knowledge of who is working with which animals will
lead to a useful exchange of information and/or specimens. For example, it seems
ridiculous to m e that Doris si. still exists without proper naming. Please direct future
solicitations to Opisthobranch Newsletter - CALL FOR SPECIMENS. This column may
also be used to solicit specimens of species already described).

ERRATA TO BEHRENS' BOOK
Dave Behrens has provided an errata to his book -- Pacific Coast Nudibranchs: A Guide
to the Opisthobranchs of the Northeastern Pacific. The most significant errors lie in
the oversight of Lambert (1976) making some of Dave's northern range limits a little
short. Other errors are minor, even a few US/Canadian border disuptes over Vancouver
and Puget Sound. Errors in capitalization and minor punctuation are left out here.
Corrections are underlined, except for deletions, which are noted.

Thanks to all of you for your patience and continued support. Thanks especially
to Don Cadien, James Lance, Tom Cockburn, Sandra Millen, Hans Bertsch, Jeff Hamann,
Eveline Marcus, Clayton Carlson, Bob Burn, I.S. Roginskaya, and Dave Behrens, who
have recently sent information for the newsletter.
From Jeff Hamann: "I made an interesting trip to Cedros Is. in August. ,My wife,
parents, 3 brothers and 1 year old daughter spent a week aboard a friend's boat, the
Kalinga. We dove the southern end of the island and found 13 species of nudibranchs.
The two worth mentioning were a new chromodorid and a range extension for an
unnamed coryphelid. I brought the chromodorid home and Jim Lance is working it
over. We also found a new, species which I've sent to Dave Behrens. The other
species are more what you'd expect: Chromodoris macfarlandi, Dendronotus frondosus,
Doto kya, D. amyra, Eubranchus rustyus, Facelina stearnsi, Flabellinopsis iodinea,
Polycera atra, Hypselodoris californiensis & Cadlina flavomaculata.
Grace & Tom Cockburn had their first child, a boy, Brian Andrew, on December 27,
Dr. S.A. Mileikowsky died suddenly on September 12, 1980. His works included
seasonal dynamics of pelagic larvae of bottom invertebrates, and particularly
breeding and larval distribution of Pteropoda.
Bob Burn identified the dorid on Carlson & Hoff 's Christmas card as Chromodoris
bullockl Collingwood, 1881 which has also been found in Northern Australia.
From Hillary H. West: "I am currently an assistant professor of biology at Illinois
State Uniiversity. In 1980 I received my Ph.D. from Northeastern University, Boston,
MA. My thesis work was an investigation of chloroplast symbiosis and development of
Elysia chlorotica a local salt marsh ascoglossan. Currently Dr. June Harrigan (of
the NITT Biophysics program at Woods Hole) and I are collaborating on a study of the
inheritance of variable reproductive modes in this animal using laboratory crosses."
Dr. Itaru Usuki is now working in the field of Protozoology and is not doing any
From Jeff Hamann: "I've finally finished sorting slides from Aruba. I also used
Jim's [Lance] great library to identify most of them. I had all three of my brothers
collecting with me & we came up with a grand total of 22 species. Snorkelling proved
to be most productive as there is little or no tidal throw & only 3 specimens were
collected in over 10' of water. Elysia cauze, Elysia ornata, Oxynoe antillarum,
Aplysia dactylomela 2 Berthellina quadridens, Pleurobranchus areolatus, Aglaja
